With Sympathy -- card for My Nannies sweet furbaby

Hello, friends! I hope you are all having a fantastic week so far! Today I have a card for my sweet Nanny! She lost both of her dear puppies in a matter of 4 days. She is positively heartbroken because they were her children! I had a friend about a year ago who had lost her doggie and so I purchased this perfect stamp (from Papertrey Ink) set for just this kind of sad time. It is good to have on hand, but I hat having to use it ;-)


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock and DCWV patterned paper.








Sorry for the lack of words today! I am actually in bed with a stomach bug and am having trouble writing this. Aren't stomach bugs the worst!


Have a great Tuesday!

Sandy from Ukiah said...

Oh how sad for your Nanny.... sorry you have the stomach flu, hoping you get better real soon. But what a beautiful card you made even while you are sick. You are so amazing.

JenE said...

Pretty card for a sad occasion. I hope you feel better...I had that stomach bug yesterday, feeling better today but still afraid to eat anything!

Hobbs Ohana said...

Hope you feel better! I feel the same way about sympathy cards of any type. I have a hard time making them. It's also the type of card I just can't make myself "make ahead" of time just incase. I don't want to have a just incase for anyone. :-(. Again, feel better soon!

Kendra Hottle said...

What a sweet card! I hope you feel better soon.

Very sweet and nice card. I know how sad losing your furbaby is. My sympathies. You need a sympathy card yourself! I spent yesterday fighting off something: yep, stomach bugs are AWFUL.

I hear you...I didn't feel right for the last few days. Yucky. Feel better soon.
I love the card. I'm always looking for ideas for sympathy cards because I'm afraid to have them turn out cheerful looking.

Angela W said...

I'm sure that thoughtful card will help her feel a little better. Hope you do to. (awillmon39@aol.com)

Cute card, but sorry for your nanny's loss. They become such a part of the family that it is so hard.

Angie said...

This one is very nice for the occasion...sad, of coarse. I particularly like it b/c I used the same paper over the weekend to make my G'ma's 75th BD card.

What a wonderful card to express your sympathy. Too many people don't understand the loss you feel when your precious pet passes away.

Brenda said...

Very nice card. In our neighborhood, we know the animals as well as the kids, and acknowledge our loses. TFS even when your not feeling great !

Barbara said...

Hope you feel better soon! The card is beautiful.

Sharon said...

So sorry to hear of your Nanny's loss. This is a very sweet card for her. Hope you are feeling better. :)

Lovely card! Hope you feel better soon!

beautifully done....hope you feel better too

yvette said...

Oh I am so sorry for your nanny's loss. To loose one is bad enough, but 2 in 4 days, I think it would break my spirits so badly. I have 4 dogs, and indeed, they are my children. And eventhough I know the time will come when I have to say goodbye, I am not prepaired for the heartache whatsoever!

Wendy Raffin said...

Symathies to your Nannie! That is always tough, but your card is beautiful. What a nice sentiment.

GiGi said...

Such an ellegant card! So sad for the reason though :(
